Tokyo Stock Market Nikkei Stock Average Temporary drop of over 400 yen August 15 at 15:39

On the 15th, the stock market in Tokyo was strengthened by concerns over the slowdown of the global economy, and sales orders spread. The Nikkei Stock Average dropped by more than 400 yen.

The Tokyo stock market on the 15th was almost completely depreciated, and the decline in the Nikkei Stock Average temporarily exceeded 470 yen, but there was also a move to buy back stocks that had fallen once.

The Nikkei Stock Average, the closing price on the 15th, is 249.48 yen from the 14th, and is cheaper at 20,405.65 yen. TSE Stock Price Index = 15.65, down 1488.85.
The daily trading volume was 1,138.61 million shares.

The reason for the drop in prices is that the Dow average share price in the New York Stock Market on the 14th was the biggest drop, and the global economic slowdown was further strengthened. In addition, there was a reversal phenomenon in which the long-term interest rate, which is said to be a sign of a recession, in the US bond market on this day falls below the level of short-term interest rates, which has chilled investor sentiment.

Market officials said, “In addition to prolonged US-China trade friction, protests continue in Hong Kong, and the global economic outlook remains high, and investors' concerns are difficult to get rid of. In an easy situation, stock prices are expected to remain unstable for the time being. ”
